Open Quote I am a staff member at Walnut Bend AND a parent, and I see first-hand what lengths the teachers and administrators go to help each child achieve. My oldest went all the way through Walnut Bend (before I began working here) and is now a straight-A student in a magnet program. My youngest is still here at WB. I would recommend this school even if I did not work here. A school is not just test scores (although ours are improving!) A school is a loving, caring, structured environment where kids can feel safe and learn, and Walnut Bend is definitely that! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
